  2. 2. Measurement solutions for heating, refrigeration, air conditioning and ventilation A good climate can be measured before it becomes noticeable.

This saves valuable time, enabling you role, as does the prevention of building damage, due in some to focus on your actual work. cases to increased humidity. Experts who understand their air conditioning trade are responsible for this.

For comfort level measurements too, you will find an extensive selection of measuring instruments and probes2 at Testo. All Testo instruments are robust, handy and easy to use.
  3. 3. At the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Rio de Janeiro, the community ofstates undertook in 1992 to introduce measures for climate protection. In existing buildings,there is huge potential for the reduction of energy consumption and harmful greenhousegases. Around the world, regulations therefore prescribe the efficient use of energy. 3

Advantages of Testo in heating and sanitation: • Wide range of measuring instruments, probes and accessories • State-of-the-art flue gas analysers with exchange- able, precalibrated gas sensors Flue gas analyser • Gas pipe test and solid fuel measurement testo 330-2 LL v2010 • Maximum robustness and optimum measuring convenience4
  5. 5. Is everything OK with the heating system? With measuring technology from Testo, you will know immediately. The testo 830 IR thermometer (Fig. onthe left) with 2-point laser sighting carries out extremely accurate temperature measurements. With one of our handy pressure gauges, you can checkthe stress resistance and leak-tightness of gas and water installations.The international “Technology Roadmap” for energy-efficient buildings works on theassumption that the energy demand for building heating and cooling will increase atthe current rate of development to 4,500 million tonnes of oil by 2050. By takingcountermeasures, the demand solely in terms of heating and DHW in buildings canbe reduced by approx. a third. 5
  6. 6. Air conditioning & ventilation Controlled ventilation of living spaces and comfort level measurement safely in hand. Whether at home or at work – with measuring technology from Testo, you have a solid handle on modern air conditioning. Room air quality depends primarily not on oxygen, but rather on the CO2 level. A reasonable ratio is max. 1 litre of CO2 in 1000 litres of air, or: 1000 parts per million (ppm). If the CO2 level in rooms exceeds this limit for a long period, people may suffer from headaches or poor concentration.6
  7. 7. Testo is used for a good working climate: with the compact testo 417 anemometer, you can determine the flow speed and volumetric flow parametersquickly and easily. And with the testo 435 multi-function measuring instrument (Fig. on the right), you can measure the CO2 level, the air temperatureand the humidity to assess the quality of the air in the room.A naturally pleasant climate and air of a high hygienic qual- Values for flow, temperature, humidity, pressure, illumi-ity are key to a healthy working environment.

You can offer advice for a perfect climate in all rooms in the case of new builds, renovations or complaints. This extra service gives you an advantage over the competition. Advantages of Testo in air conditioning and ventilation: • Time-saving testing of all room air parameters • VAC systems set up in compliance with the standards Vane anemometer • Extensive instrument and probe selection for VAC testo 417 and comfort level measurements, as well as con- trolled ventilation of living spaces • Efficient room climate analysis with just one instrument 7

Climate measuring instrument Advantages of Testo for building technology: testo 480 • Wide range of measuring instruments for greater energy efficiency • Compact handheld instruments for mobile climate measurements • Remote monitoring of store rooms and cold rooms • High-resolution thermal images to detect hidden structural defects and leaks10
  11. 11. A controlled room climate is just as important for people as it is for sensitive instruments and products or exhibits in exhibition halls and store rooms.With modern climate measuring instruments from Testo, you can determine all relevant room air parameters quickly and conveniently, and use ourhigh-resolution thermal imagers (Fig. on the right) to check that systems and installations are working properly.VAC systems create a pleasant room climate, ensure high room air quality, eliminateodours and pollutants and divert thermal loads. To ensure this and to keep energycosts under control, regular hygienic and energetic inspections are essential. 11
  12. 12. Building trade No chance of thermal bridges. Now with SuperResolution: Testo thermography identifies structural defects reliably. Any object with a temperature higher than minus 273 degrees Celsius, absolute zero, emits thermal radiation in the IR range. Thermal imagers convert this radiation into electrical signals and make them visible to the human eye.12
  13. 13. Due to previous architectural mistakes, the operation andmaintenance of buildings now involves considerably higherfollow-up costs than originally planned. “State of the art”now means sustained, climate-neutral building and renova-tion. Visible characteristics are airtight building shells, ther-mally optimised components with a low U-value, andenergy-efficient heating systems that utilise renewableenergy or ventilation systems with heat recovery. Onlythe precise interaction of all these components rulesout building damage.Thanks to excellent image quality and innovative technolo-gies, Testo thermal imagers reliably identify inadequatebuilding elements.

With our high-resolution thermal imagers, you are reliably on top of even hid-den problems thanks to “SuperResolution”. 13
  14. 14. Energy consultancy Your energy system fully in hand. With Testo measuring technology, you can always make the right diagnosis. IR technology in thermal imagers is ideal for effective and extensive energy consultancy. The thermal image enables you to see, in detail, energy losses while heating or air con- ditioning buildings, as well as inadequate insulation on exter- nal windows and roller blind casings or thermal bridges on the roof structure and building shell.14
  15. 15. Energy consultants will find an extensive range of special measurement solutions at Testo for building analysis, e.g. high-resolution thermal imagersfor thermographic analyses of the building shell (Fig. on the right) or the testo 175-T3 temperature data logger (Fig. in the centre) for parallel tempera-ture monitoring at two measuring points, for example at the flow and return of a heating system.For air conditioning and the supply of hot water in buildings, We open doors to old buildings in need of complete reno-large quantities of energy are generated and consumed. vation with the new Testo thermal imager testo 885.
